It's a great place to pick up locally grown produce and spend time with great people. We love the organic spinach and salad greens and the baked goods are fantastic.

It supports local farmers as well as downtown merchants. I can't imagine being in town without Curb Market. It also is a place where you meet friends.

They continue the tradition of farmers (small and big) bringing good wholesome food to people who can meet the growers face to face.

Early Saturday mornings in Franklin take you to the Curb Market where friends and family stroll the traffic island and chat with local farmers, vendors and artists. It is the perfect way to begin your weekend, buying great, fresh produce, baked goods, organic nuts, honeys and even handmade jewelry. It is the perfect example of small town life as it was and continues to be for all of us lucky to be in walking or biking distance of downtown and our favorite Saturday morning haunt.

Think global, eat local is my motto and the Franklin Curb Market makes that happen. At this time of year, before much produce is available, folks at curb market sell a lot of produce that's not really local, that is actually grown in Venango County, but I prefer to buy there because its so good to get out in such a beautiful outdoor place, to meet and greet my neighbors and vendors and to support the local economy.

Franklin,PA. represents the classic "Home Town" feeling, and enjoys the interest of many community leaders working to preserve that small town feeling.

Need produce that is fresh, tasty and, in most cases, cheaper than the local grocery store? Go to Franklin Curb Market. It's by the Venango County courthouse and fountain park. Beautiful setting, friendly vendors, nice place to spend a part of your morning.

My dad once sent me a big red tomato from Curb Market-- all the way to Texas. It arrived intact -- I served slices to Texas friends who had never tasted such a tomato! Another time we brought butter and sugar corn on the cob back to Texas in a U-Haul. Our car smelled like corn for a few weeks after that. A trip to Franklin isn't complete without a visit to Curb Market! Can't wait til summer 2009!

We support all local food markets: buying food raised close to home helps farmers who grow it; provides fresh, local produce for consumers; and contributes to a decreased carbon footprint when produce is not trucked in. It is also a wonderful way to meet and greet those who live and work in your area.

I remember that market while growing up in Franklin. It was fantastic. We lived a block away and my family ate many a healthy meal from those carts.

I grew up in Franklin and in my younger years frequently accompanied my mother to the farmers market. She knew many of the vendors by name and I recall some wonderful conversations. My mother was an excellent cook; I imagine the fresh fruits and vegetables made the meals even better! I return to Franklin every five years without fail to celebrate a festival reunion with fellow members of the class of 1960. I always look forward to a casual stroll through the farmers market. I don't plan to cook anything, but of all my memories of Franklin, the farmers market is one of the very best. Look for me next year (2010) because I will surely be there.

I have been to open air markets from Maine to Virginia and Franklin is my favorite because of the variety and quality of the people as well as the produce. We will keep coming back, all the way from Fredericksburg, VA!

I, too, grew up in Franklin 50 years ago. I well remember Saturday walks with my family to the Farmers' Market. In recent years, when visiting Franklin during the summer, I bring several pounds of my favorite ham loaf back to Colorado. The best I've every tasted!

The vegetables are locally grown and fresh. When the season comes for strawberries or corn we get the best ever. We try to support our local farmers and this is the best way possible.

This market has been going strong for many, many years. It highlights local produce and products, and offerings vary with the season. I am in my 60's, but remember going there as a child.

Farm fresh veggies are great, and the bakery items were gone before you could wink a eye. When I come up this summer, I live in Florida, you can bet that will be one of the places I surely will attend. Many thanks

First of all, the setting is delightful - right in the middle of town in front of the historic County Courthouse, snuggled between our Fountain Park and our Bandstand Park. A visit to the market is always a good experience - good products, good people, and good conversation, You never know who you are going to meet - an old friend who you haven't seen for years or your next door neighbor. It is just somplace uniquely special.
